    Default Fall Spawn ?

    Not likely but hey it got your attention
    I imagine somewhere some confused crappie do but as a general rule not in numbers best I can tell . I will say they get very active though when the water temperatures drop and the daylight shortens .
    Crappie 101 tip of the week goes like this .
    The primary food source in many lakes are threadfin shad . Threadfin shad eat algae and minute planktons and such . They like the kind that is free floating and filter feed on it . When water temperatures drop some below the summer peak the algae blooms start to decline . Algae production comes to a near shut down at around 65 degrees water temperature .
    so this in turn causes the shad to be restless and look for places to spend the winter with slightly warmer water as at around 55 degrees water temperature the cold becomes life threatening to shad .
    So keep in mind this part and pay close attention , the shad will do several different things to avoid death and eat . One is to run up a shallow creek where it stays warmer and there might be slight amounts of forage for them .
    The shad have already begun the migration in Texas to shallow waters yawl ….FYI

    I wish finding the crappie was as easy as finding the Shad! Maybe it is.....

    mind you this yawl crappie will be in the vicinity of the shad in many cases and maybe not right with them . they are an ambush predator most of the time and in the daylight might very well just lie in wait in some cover waiting it out until the sun fades and they become more active .
    probing brush and laydowns and rock piles and such in the daylight in those shallow areas close to the bait might be the ticket instead of fishing right where the bait schools are .
